On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses some of the many problems plaguing the combat sports, in particular MMA and boxing, and asks if catch wrestling, where you can only win by pin or submission, and which has been having a rebirth of late, can re-emerge as a popular spectator sport as it once was in the early 1900s. Also discussed is the devolution of professional catch wrestling into a fixed non-sport, which was most likely the worst case of corruption in the modern history of sports in the world.
The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", which is also available on iTunes by composer Ian Snow.
